Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.4 MB
Overview: “Changing a 2,000-year-old body’s organizational structure is one thing, changing its culture yet another. Vatican II attempted both.” – From the Introduction
The editors of the National Catholic Reporter gathered leading scholars to reflect on the revolutionary Second Vatican Council, fifty years after its opening. The 30 articles in this book appeared in a special edition of NCR to celebrate the council’s golden anniversary.
Topics range from collegiality to women’s congregations, human sexuality to theology, and on across the spectrum of essential subjects in a dynamic and changing Church. Young Catholics, who were not yet alive during Vatican II, reflect on the council’s legacy and how it impacts their faith lives.
The book concludes with an exploration of how we can further the vision for the Church put forth by the Second Vatican Council.
